Medicine Hat’s For a Life Unburdened are ready to unleash their first full-length album, Contempt/Clarity.
A video for their lead single, “Run Away”, is now available on YouTube; and explores the repetition and mediocrity of office work life, and the struggle to find an escape from the daily grind.
Contempt/Clarity is For a Life Unburdened’s first album following their 2016 EP Waiting For Us To Die. In support of their new album, the band is currently on a cross-country summer tour. With stops already completed on the west coast, the band is moving their way across Ontario; with stops in Hamilton, Toronto and Ottawa in the coming days.

Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
